How to design an A2 poster
Whether you’re a dab hand at creating and designing yourself, or you’re entrusting the experience and knowledge of your in-house team, turning your ideas into an artwork sensation for your A2 prints has never been so easy!
It’s simple and quick to set your blank canvas up so it’s ready to go. The finished A2 poster size is 420mm x 594mm, so you’ll have to set your artwork up at 426mm x 600mm to add a 3mm bleed to both sides. Make sure you set your colour mode to CMYK and only use high-resolution images (at least 300dpi) for the best finished result. Also, as you may be using bespoke fonts within your design, it’s important to remember to embed or flatten your fonts before you send your artwork over to us.
We also have a few handy templates for programs such as Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and also a PDF version, which will help get you set up.
What if I don’t have an A2 poster design?
No artwork? No sweat! If you need them, we have an array of helpful A2 poster templates in our library which make for a great starting point and are sure to get those creative juices flowing. Whether you’re creating an A2 print for your Christmas sale, a summer street party or an inspiring quote for your shop wall, we have templates to suit every need.
What type of paper should I choose for my A2 poster printing?
Whether you’re on a tight budget and looking for cheap A2 printing or need the highest quality available, we offer a range of quality stocks to suit every business’ need. Choose from two different thicknesses of silk paper for indoor use or try our PVC options for any outdoor advertising.
For indoor and outdoor events, choose a weather-proof PVC event poster, available in both 220 micron and 400 micron options, and enjoy coverage come rain or shine. Alternatively, our heavyweight 250gsm silk paper gives the ultimate professional touch and makes the most of the magnificent A2 print size; perfect for a busy window or spacious wall exhibition.
